Cirque was born in Denmark, older sister to Case, by ComeBack II out of Jolly von Gersdorf by Leandro. She has lived at Mandala most of her life, having been imported as a yearling. She has had four foals, Cicada by Olympic Ferro is jumping in California, Rowan by Rotspon is competing in dressage and winning at every show, Cornet by Cornet Obolensky is sold as a foal to Carousel Ridge, and Danika by Dancier will be a yearling in 2010.

Between Rowan and Cornet Cirque competed successfully in jumping herself, placing well in the 1.2 and 1.25m classes. She spent some time in the US competing there for a junior rider.
